THE COUNTRY CORNER

OBAMA vs OSAMA

After numerous rounds of "We don't even know if Osama is still alive", Barrack Hussein Obama has now been telling everyone he will capture or kill Osama Bin Laden when elected.
So, Osama himself decided to send Barrack Hussein Obama a letter in his own handwriting to let him know he was still in the game.  Obama opened the letter and it contained a single line of coded message:
                370H-SSV-0773H
Obama was baffled, so he e-mailed it to Howard Dean.  Dean and the DNC and his aides had no clue either, so they sent it to Joe Biden.  Joe Biden could not solve so it was sent to the FBI and the CIA.
Eventually they asked John McCain and his staff to look at it.  And within minutes McCain's staff e-mailed Obama this reply:
"Tell Obama he's holding the message upside down."

DETROIT

The  four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram,
and Max, invented and  developed the first automobile air-conditioner.

On July 17, 1946, the  temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees.
The four brothers walked into  old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling  him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the  auto industry since the electric
starter.
Henry was curious and  invited them into his office.
They refused and instead asked that he come  out to the parking lot to their car.
They persuaded him to get into  the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and  cooled the car off immediately.
The old man got very excited and  invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the  patent.
The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million,
but they wanted the recognition by having a label,
'The Goldberg  Air-Conditioner,' on the dashboard of
each car in which it was installed.
Now old man Ford was more than just a little anti-Semitic, and there  was no way he was going to put the
Goldberg's name on two million Fords.

They haggled back and forth for about two hours, and finally agreed  on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.
And so  to this day, all Ford air conditioners show Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max on the  controls.
So, now you know...

'AFRICAN ELEPHANT

My five-year old students are learning to read. Yesterday one of them
pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said,
'Look at this! It's a frickin'
elephant!'

I took a deep breath, then asked...
'What did you call it?'
'It's
a frickin' elephant! It says so on the picture!'
